Insight into the right steps to take for migrating workloads to public cloud and successfully reducing cost as a result. Read the Guide.

These are two pretty significant features when your working with 24/7, mission critical applications and database that run on EC2.

For EC2, you can now:

  • Change Instance Type - This means that you can scale up or scale down as your needs change. The new instance type must be compatible with the AMI that you used to boot the instance, so you can’t change from 32 bit to 64 bit or vice versa.
  • Shutdown Behavior - You can now control what happens when an EBS-backed instance shuts itself down. You can choose to stop the instance (so that it can be started again later) or to terminate the instance.

Gone are the days when you shut down an instance and its gone forever, thanks to EBS and the new and Amazon EC2.

TrueSight Cloud Cost Control provides visibility and control over multi-cloud costs including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and others.
